‘I Thought Muhammad Ali Was Really Intelligent Until I Saw This Picture’: Rare Photograph of Boxing Legend Leaves Fans in Stitches

Muhammad Ali has ruled every boxing fan’s heart. His vibrant and outspoken personality, well-clothed and well-timed delivery of rhymes, and the dance that he did while he boxed in the ring. There were so many ways in which Ali fascinated his fans. Whether it be the ‘roll-on’ joke on George Foreman, his classic wins over the likes of Floyd Patterson, Sonny Liston, and Zora Folley, or his taunting of Michael Dokes against the ropes in the middle of an ongoing fight. In all aspects, Ali promised true entertainment for fans.

Recently, a rare photograph of ‘The Greatest Muhammad Ali’ went viral on the net. Holding an axe with his two hands, a developed and well-built Ali was seen vigorously chopping wood. Following the resurfacing of the image on Facebook, fans reacted in various ways.

To stay in shape, Ali trained by employing different methods he could. He ran regularly, sideways, and even backward at times. To condition his body and develop that powerful swing he would need in his fights, Ali considered chopping wood.
